This is another of my visual poetry experiments. this one was on the front of one of those green electricity cupboards that there seem to be loads of in my neighbourhood. I chose one that already had a lot of graffiti on it - partly to add something visually to the piece, but also because somehow I felt bad about defacing one that was more pure and unadulterated. I took quite a few pictures but preferred the ones like this which show a fragment of the text. The text is from a poem that I had written some time ago but that seemed appropriate for the environment. I made the labels from memory and realised today that I had missed out a line - not that that matters really.
